I think the guy is pretty well off. Said he owns a construction company and just bought a new vette which is why he does'nt have time to ride it.
You guys got me to thinking about whether I got a good deal or not, soo I did a little research on what it might cost your average Joe to build a bike like this.
Heres what I came up with:
Rear Ohlins Shock $848.00
Ohlins R&T Forks (FG329) $2,159.00
PM forged domino wheels $2,500.00
PM Front Brake Calipers $1,000.00
SS Brake Lines $200.00
PM Front Brake Discs $630.00
PM Rear Brake Caliper $375.00
PM Rear Brake Disc $300.00
PM Hand Controls $350.00
Renthal Fat Bars $75.00
Renthal Sprockets F/R $106.00
DID chain $105.00
RSD Custom Triple clamps $700.00
Vance & Hines Custom Pipes $500.00
CBR 1KRR front fender $170.00
Honda 599 Headlamp $170.00
Honda 599 Meter Assym. $704.00
Total Cost of parts $10,892.00
I know you could probably get the meter assymbly used and I had to guess cost on hand controls / triple clamps as they are 1 off customs, but still. Now you can add custom Airtrix paint, powdercoating and sheetmetal work on top of that and of course the cost of the bike and probably be in the high teens, low 20's. This is assuming you installed all the parts yourself. Ohh and don't forget that cool A* jacket that comes with it.
I think I got a decent deal.
Bike should be shipped out middle of next week and arrive before the end of the month.
